Tottenham Hotspur could land Gareth Bale on a free transfer in the summer

According to Spanish publication Marca (h/t Daily Star), Real Madrid could permit Welsh superstar Gareth Bale to leave on a free transfer in the summer. The 30-year-old was linked with a move away last summer, only for his wages to prove to be a stumbling block for interested parties.

Tottenham were among the clubs interested as the Welsh winger came close to joining Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning.

Bale earns a mammoth £650,000-a-week. Apart from wages, his worrying injury history is also a turn off for clubs interested in securing his signature. Bale has continued to suffer a number of injuries this season and has missed 13 games for Los Blancos

Gareth Bale was an electrifying player at Tottenham

According to the report, Real Madrid are keen to get the player’s wages off their books and will consider letting him leave on a free. It will be an anticlimactic finish for a player who cost a then-world record £85million in 2013.

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is not in favor of keeping the player at the Santiago Bernabeu. His contract in Madrid runs until 2022 and cutting him loose will help the club save a small fortune.

Tottenham retain an interest in re-signing the player and could face competition from league rivals Manchester United. Bale played 206 times for Tottenham in a spell lasting six seasons. A popular figure among the Spurs faithful, the Welshman won the PFA Players’ Player of the year award (twice) and the FWA Player of the year. He also made it to the Team of the season thrice.

Bale is not as unpopular among the Madrid faithful as thought. His unwillingness to learn Spanish and arrogant nature coupled with the love of golf are reasons as to why he has not achieved the same status among fans at Madrid as he has done with us.

Gareth Bale was extremely successful at Tottenham

He has played a key role in most of Real Madrid’s major triumphs in the last decade. He has also helped them win four European crowns, scoring in the finals against Atletico Madrid and Liverpool.

The six-time Welsh player of the year has scored 105 goals and 67 assists in 249 games for Madrid. Still only 30, he has a number of seasons left in him and will be an excellent signing for us. It remains to be seen if we make a move for the former fan favourite.
